8:00 am
closure to michaela garecht's family, that's what they want to do. her case is now 24 years old. it was back in 1988 when she was kidnapped in front of a hayward grocery store. while police say this is one of many leads they've chased over the years, they will do what it takes to find out if this bone belongs to michaele lay. -- michaela. >> hopefully the dna will give us closure on whether it is or isn't. >> reporter: now, the bone was found in a well in linden back in february. it was given to the mother of joanne hobson who meant missing back in 1985. however, hobson's mother was not happy with the san joaquin sheriff's department's handling of thevation. so she went all of the evidence to chico state. not all of the bones were that of hobson.
